Ciara Reveals How She Lost 60 Pounds After Her Pregnancy

Ciara Reveals How She Lost 60 Pounds After Her Pregnancy

Ciara looks absolutely amazing while showing off her body for the cover of Shape magazine’s September 2015 issue, on newsstands August 18.

Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On losing the 60 pounds she gained throughout her pregnancy: “When I was pregnant with Future Jr., one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil! But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day. I would go to Gunnar first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day. That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months.”

On her go-to diet mantra: “I have a mantra, ‘The food isn’t going anywhere.’ You know those days when you think you have to have that plate of pasta right now? When I’m trying to be good, I take a minute to ask myself, Do you really need to eat all this crazy stuff? It will still be around if you really want it later.”

On her personal version of success: “Success begins with self-belief. Once you’ve got that, then you have to envision what you want to achieve. There’s a video of me at my high school graduation, and when I was asked where I thought I’d be in a year, I said, ‘I see myself having a number-one record.’ A year later, “Goodies” was number one and sold five million copies. Four years ago, I wrote down that I wanted to be the face of a fashion campaign, and this fall, I’ll be the new face for designer Roberto Cavalli. I truly believe that if you put your goals in writing, speak them out loud, and work for them, they will happen.”

    I can’t take advice from a woman who names her son Future Jr. What an idiot.

    She is slayinnggg! And once again he’s not a Jr., seeing as his father’s name is not Future.

    Everybody knows she used the Spirit Happy Diet from Sweden.

    How to lose weight was revealed by Swedish
    researchers. Learn to eat like the Swedish and you get thin.

    Full dairy fats cause body fat loss, when you learn how to combine the right foods together.

    When researchers combined yogurt and another
    food together they doubled the weight loss.

    They all do in Hollywood.

    Just google SPIRIT HAPPY DIET
